Unity of Faith Christian Outreach Ministries the Recipient

Jonathan Judson and Antonio Martinez of Shango Moreno Valley help load part of the 2,500-pound food contribution to Unity of Faith Christian Outreach Ministries recently.



MORENO VALLEY, CA – Shango of Moreno Valley has held three Food Drives in the past six months, but none bigger than what was handed over to Unity of Faith Christian Outreach Ministries recently.  The local cannabis dispensary has been providing food for area residents of Moreno Valley since last fall and Shango customers stepped up again for the extended Holiday Food Drive.

The reverend in charge who takes donations to feed the area’s needy was pleasantly surprised that he needed his biggest truck this trip to haul his mountain of donations back to the church.

“We went to the weigh station and it came out right at 2,500 pounds,” Rev. Cooper Hagans III said. “This is the biggest contrition to our program from Shango. They just keep getting bigger and bigger.”

Hagans said his food program need has doubled from 7,500 people a month to 15,000. “The need is so great within our area,” Hagans said, “I was thrilled to see the enormous contribution when we drove up.”

“We want to thank all of our generous customers who donated to this Food Drive,” said Controller Julie Dubocq, “We have had hundreds of people respond with kindness in a time of great challenge.”

The Shango Moreno Valley Food Drive will resume in the summer to gear up for the Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Shango is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is located at 11875 Pigeon Pass Road, STE C-1, in Moreno Valley, CA 92557. Call 1-866-4SHANGO for more information.
